What makes Marco Island Unique?

This part of Florida is so unique?

I love the beachfront sunsets and sunshine everyday. It is more laid back than other places because it isn't crowded everyplace you go. My wife likes the small town feel, biking and shelling. There’s also a diversity of seafood cuisine and restaurants with entertainment.

What makes Marco Island unique for you?

It's so family friendly. You can walk the beach at midnight with your kids during spring break and you won't run into a bunch of drunken college kids on a tear after a night of clubbing.

Boca, West Palm, South Beach, Miami Beach, Daytona, Lauderdale, Isla Del Sol, Treasure Island, St. Pete, Maui, Waikiki, Kauai, Jersey Shore, Myrtle, Malga, Spain. Been to all and my family prefers Marco. Has for many years.

2. Re: What makes Marco Island Unique?

I so agree with the previous posts. I've travelled widely, but Marco is the only place that calls me back again and again. Sunsets, the wide manicured boulevards, an incomparable beach. Love the fact that we can watch the sun rise and the sun set from the same balcony. I give a great sigh of contentment every time I cross the Jolley Bridge, and I feel at peace there. Have never encountered anyone who has been anything but helpful to us on the island. Funny thing is, we found it by accident, and went back on our next vacation so that I could get it out of my system. I didn't work that way. I was hooked!
